Another study clearly shows the potential cardiovascular benefits of quitting smoking with e-cigarettes.
Significant improvement in arterial function, a major prognostic indicator for future cardiovascular disease, was observed.
Results: At 3- and 6-month follow-up, %FMD showed an improvement over baseline in all three groups (e.g., <span;>p<span;> p = 0.004, at 6 months).
Conclusions: Smokers attempting to quit experienced positive cardiovascular impact after both a 3- and 6-month period. None of the groups (i.e., nicotine-containing and nicotine-free e-cigarettes or NRT) offered superior cardiovascular benefits to the others.
